Armoured Face Conveyor Suppliers

Nov. 08, 2019

In early hand-working days, belt conveyors were used, but these are not amenable to high production rates as the whole conveyor had to be moved sideways to advance the face.

The major development, apart from self-advancing supports, allowing high production longwalls to evolve was the "Armoured Face Conveyor or AFC" which was originally developed in Germany and was frequently (less so nowadays) referred to as a "Panzer" conveyor.
